saw a handful of republicans on chat shows saying, oh, we'll get the vapors and faint if any defense spending increases are not carried out. what he missed was they were recycling the same four or five republican politicians, and in point of fact that's not where the, certainly not where the country is, it's not where the modern republican party is, it's not where the republicans in the house and the senate are. there's some guys on spending committees who'd like to spend money, that's understandable. but at the end of the day, we should probably figure out how to give the pentagon more flexibility, but they need to save the same amount of dollars promised in the sequester as the rest of the government does. and so the president misjudged believing that republicans would panic during the negotiations on fiscal cliff. he kept waiting for the republicans to put the sequester on the table in order to give it away. and that never happened. the republicans, let's delay the sequester two months, and president obama thought the republicans were retreating. oh, good, i'm going to get my tax

the court therefore strike down the defense of marriage act which is one of the cases it will be hearing this week which bans federal benefits for same sex couples legally married in their state. would you streak down that as federal interferences in a state matter? >> you know, i think it is a really complicated issue. i always said that the states have the right to decide. i do believe in traditional marriage. kentucky decided it and i don't think the federal government should tell us otherwise. there are states that have decided in the opposite fashion and i don't think the federal government should tell anybody or any state government how they should decide this. marriage has been a state issue you for hundreds and hundreds of years. doma is complicated because it does provide protection for the states from the federal government part of it federalizes the issue. there is a chance the court could strike down the federalization part of it. if they do i think the way to fix it is maybe to try to make all of the laws more neutral towards the issue. i don't want the government promoting
to act early in self defense in many instances. for the first time, many of those critics felt he understood because he connected it to his own experience as an african-american. he was -- has understood the civil rights movement and because of the history of america and because he said several crucial phrases, essentially said that israel will never go away. so he sort of laid out the honey, then he went and gave the vinegar line saying you have to actually now do a few things you don't like, and here they are. he did a good job from the israeli critics' perspective. >> the palestinians aren't happy, the disproportionate amount of time in israel and what he asked of the two leaders, made no public demand of netanyahu yet in israel he talked about the settlement issue. it is different than four years ago, on the arab street, including ra mal a, thought it would be different. now the israelis think we understand each other better here. >> one thing the president succeeded doing, strategically very important, john, the president set up a phone call between the prime minister of isra

in the defense of the majority that that's the way it's been for several years, both when the republicans were in charge and when the democrats are in charge. thea's thacharge that doesn't mean it is right. you have to share it. so then we had to turn around and start voting on the amendments the next morning in the budget committee and we weren't part of that process, because it was on partisan lines. i was particularly disheartened by one amendment that failed on a party-line vote that was offered by senator portman from ohio. his amendment was simply asking the congressional budget office to provide additional information with the cost estimates that it provides on legislation affecting revenues. that's right. it was just asking for additional information. and every member of the majority voted against it. how could a request for additional information be so partisan? we can and must do better for our constituents and our country. several weeks from now we may see the president's budget proposal. of course it'll be late to the game since the house and senate have already acted on the budget
is an unconstitutional and absurd view that the government can limit our right to self-defense. so the federal government with guns in a state, will it need the assistance of state police to enforce those regulations? yes. that's where we are on that. >>steve: and the reason a number of states are trying to come up with this new gun legislation is because they see washington, d.c. and they're worried about a gun grab? >> correct. the states -- our home state of new jersey could not, for example, use the police to frustrate federal law enforcement but it could say to state and local place you will not cooperate. that will make federal stphoerplt of tighter -- make federal enforcement of tighter federal gun laws nearly impossible. >>steve: we'll find out what they do do because of course the federal government has bigger fish to fry. >> where did kilmeade go? >>steve: i don't know. straight ahead on this tuesday morning. did the kwao*eugt brothers get it -- did the wright brothers get it wrong? historians now saying the wright brothers weren't the first in flight. if you're a veteran in work, stick around.
on the middle class. they will increase defense spending when everybody understands we have to scale down and reposition the defense budget. it is a hopeless mismatch. it would not stimulate the economy. look at what is happening in great burden -- great written .ith the austerity kick how is that working out? we have had greater economic growth. quote all you want from "the wall street journal" the house they aret what talking about not only is not going to happen, but it should not. host: it is the beginning of the process, the bill comes to the fore for voting this week -- to the floor for voting this week and president obama hoping for a grand bargain. here is the headline with president obama telling the credits it is better to make changes when a democrat is in office rather than risk doing so under a republican chief executive. guest: i have felt it was possible to change the way we do is this and that is why i voted against the new year's eve deal. it was not enough. it was not bold, it did not change anything and it created three fiscal cliff's for a amount of revenue recaptured.

defense system that the u.s. helped pay for. the two leaders are now huddled tess prime minister's house, where in an hour they will hold a joint news conference. >> i'm so sorry michelle couldn't come this time. she actually wanted to, and i think she had some conflicts. >> but first incog knitto, the prime minister tells the president how can he can really sightsee. >> if you have a few free minutes and can slip away from your security, a daunting task, well, we've picked up a few cafes and bars in tel aviv, and we've even prepared a fake mistausche for you. >> good day, live in jerusalem, where we are happy to, as always, be on our partner israel's hot tv. in less than an hour there will be that joint news conference. they have long disagreed on the so-called red lines, the point where iran is so close to getting a nuclear weapon it should be 'tacked preemptively, as the president was giving a guided tour of the iron dome, mr. obama made light of their dispute over red lines. >> where do you want to start in. >> we're following the red line, sir. >> the red lines are -- >> he's always
, they want to cut the budget deficits and cut defense spending and simplify the tax code and lower tax rates. in a deal with president obama they could get the first four, more deficit reduction, protect defense, the democratic president would get some cover in cutting medicare and social security and they could simplify the tax code by taking out expenditures. they are now saying they want none of those things and also not going to get the tax rates and keep the sequester and not have a deal. i've asked a lot of them to walk me through the reasoning here and honestly never come to an answer i understand a little bit. >> does that mean they're post policy. even some things that seem like constants don't actually a matter them, it's pure politics, just positioning themselves vis-a-vis the president and not interested in a particular outcome for the country? >> i would like to have an answer where that isn't true. i really would. i've been trying to find it. i'm sure part is i'm not smart enough to do so or found the right people to have spoken to them. it's hard to come up with one. we can go
, like dropping all aid to israel and pretty much zeroing out defense spending and all sorts of things. it seems like they don't even know about him. but unless rand paul becomes the nominee, what would lead to any real policy changes in the next presidential republican candidacy? >> robert is right. policy changes aren't going to be driven by the republican national committee, they're driven by the candidates for president next round. certainly if you look at one of the recommendations was we had too many debates and the primary season was too long. i come from the school there's no such thing as a bad question, only bad answers. we had a lot of bad answers on a debate stage that on any given night resembled a reality show. that's what part of the problem is. one of the things as a republican that gives you hope, you look at some of the people to solve the leadership deficit, chris christie, marco rubio, we have a cast of characters for the 2016 race that's different than the cast of characters in the 2012 race, so i think there's a little silver lining in that for republicans. >> let
, revolutionary missile defense programs, and unprecedented security and intelligence cooperation. >> joining me now, pj crowley, former u.s. assistant secretary of state for public affairs, and richard wolf, executive editor of msnbc.com. pj, i was sitting on the morning joe set when joe klein went off like that on bb netanyahu. i was kind of sitting there waiting for this day today because i then believe that president obama was going to get reelected, never thought he lost that advantage, and i knew this day was coming whether the president would get off a plane in israel or netanyahu would come here and they would have to shake hands for the first time after the election. how awkward was this for bb netanyahu today? >> i mean, it is not unprecedented, and the two leaders are doing what they need to do. >> yes, they are, now they are. >> they're going to be with each other for as long as the israeli coalition lasts, which may be a year or two, and of course, for the four years of the obama term. so they're making the most of the relationship. but underneath that, there is unprecedented cooper
's defense. it is actually the antithesis of what we need. when the budget certainty and flexibility. sequestration compromises our readiness and compounds risk. left unaddressed, it could lead to a security gap, a lapse in coverage against threats to our national security interests. it is also the law. i'm hopeful but not optimistic that both its magnitude will be defused in the budget deal appeared in the meantime we have no choice but to prepare for its effect, which is our worst-case scenario. are you feeling afflicted? if you are, you're in good company. let me tell you this. the coverage, to continue my insurance metaphor, maybe a little less than what you were used to, but it is still the best available. and it is going to get better in time. here is where i hope my confidence bring some comfort. last week i called our joint chiefs and our combatant commanders to discuss how we will lead to this latest contraction, and it is the latest contraction. it is a bit of a historical pattern. in that room, where over 600 years of military experience was around the table, i thought we

they return here on c-span. today marks the 10th anniversary of the iraq war. here's part of what defense secretary hagel had to say about it in a statement released earlier from the pentagon. >> 34 years ago today, we began providing televised access to the everyday workings of congress and the federal government. the c-span networks, created by america's cable companies in 1979 and brought to you as a public service by your television provider. >> we could take pictures of the brain with m.r.i. scans or c.t. scans or pet scans and see the whole thing. there is this enormous gap in between about how the circuits in the brain function in order to be able to move my hand or to look at you and process that information, or lay out in memory. we don't know how that works. with technologies yet to be invented, a lot of this is going to be technology development, a lot of it will be nanotechnology, what we aim to do is be able to record from thousands, maybe hundreds of thousands of brain cells at the same time, be able therefore to underis stand how these circuits work. that's the brain activi
the republicans, scrambling to do away with cuts to defense, i will not accept that reid said, my people in the state of nevada and the country have had enough to whacking the programs we've cut to the bear bones. not only has he offended the united states marine corps and families who lost their loved ones,'s also a hypocrite when you think about what he said just may of last year. so, i don't see this as a clumsy statement, i see this as a deliberate thing that he has said. much the same as when he accused mitt romney of certain things from the senate floor. harry reid has to be called responsible for the statement that he made, and as i've said, he needs to go over to the marine barracks before a formation of marines, standing with the commandant and give an apology and not just have some spokes people from his office do it, cowardly. >> i will say that, you know, that it's with his statement that was issued by his office, if it's-- i find it difficult to say to think it was sort after clumsy statement that he made on the senate floor, other than maybe if his staff was just serving, i
in the department of defense where they are buying biofuel at some extraordinary $35 a gallon. here is a place you can save money and pointed today, that the u.s. foreign aid program had created, i think a 27 million dollar program in morocco to teach moroccans how to do pottery. they've been in pottery 5,000 years. couldn't we go through, as paul ryan said, couldn't we go through and agree to cut out the dumb stuff? tuff there's ideology. for instance, taxes, speaker boehner says no more tax increase after the 600 billion tax increase the president at the end of the year got. he said absolutely no. are the republicans going to have to give on the taxes? >> well, i think it depends on what happens. i personally don't believe that we are undertaxed. i mean, you look at this economy right now, between regulation and taxes, this economy is a mess. and you compare this economy to exactly the same cycle of reagan's presidency getting 5, 6, 7, 8% growth a quarter. i mean-- >> so are you saying that the republicans, that should be a line in the sand for republicans, no tax increase. >> i think they shoul
it was senator coburn who offered it -- to end a program in the department of defense where they are buying biofuel at some extraordinary amount, $35 a gallon -- he said, you know, here's a place where you can save money. he pointed to the u.s. foreign aid program had created a -- i think it was a $27 million program in morocco to teach moroccans how to do pottery. moroccans have been doing pottery about 5,000 years. couldn't we go through as paul ryan said -- and at least agree to cut out the really dumb stuff? >> some of the stuff, it's ideology. speaker boehner says no more tax increase at the end of the year that the president got. he says, you know, absolutely no. you know, are the republicans going to have to give on the taxes? >> well, i think it depends on what happens. i personally don't believe that we are under taxed. i mean, you look at the economy right now, between regulation and taxes, this economy is a mess. you compare this economy tovill exactly the same psyche nel reagan's presidency, where we have 5, 6, 7, 8% a quarter. >> are you saying that should be a line in the sand
thought was going to happen, because he saw a handful of republicans on shows saying if any of the defense spending increases are not carried out, when he missed was they were recycling the same four or five republican politicians and that is certainly not where the country is, not with the moderate republican party and not where the republicans in the house and the senate art. there are guys on the spending committee that would like to spend money and that's understandable but at the end of the day, we should probably figure out how to get the pentagon more flexibility that they need for the same amount of dollars promised the sequester as the rest of the government does and so the president misjudged, believing that republicans would panic during negotiations on the fiscal cliff. he kept waiting for the republicans to put the sequester on the table in order to give it away. that never happened. what the republicans did was -- and president obama thought the republicans were retreating. oh god i'm going to get my tax increase down the republicans are about to give up on the sequester. the
and it is coming up close. bill: what the israelis built the iron dome missile defense shield which worked tremendously well last time around with hamas. what is the state of affairs with the relationship benjamin netanyahu and president obama? how is it going? >> it is complicated but it seems to be improving the optics are certainly warm. the question is what is happening behind closed doors. i think both men see it in their interests, the national interest of both countries to close the gap. if they have disagreements keep them behind closed doors. keep working on them. don't let disagreements with this moment with this threat from iran and syria become public. keep that daylight limited. bill: what is public is that the reception that chuck hagel has been received by the israeli people has not been necessarily flattering as the new defense secretary. in addition to that it is public that ben benjamin netanyahu supported the other guy. he was a fan of mitt romney. >> these political moments are going to happen. the u.s. under president obama has a lot to rebuild in terms of credibility
to tell him what sel self-defense firearms to buy. he is so reckless on this whole gun issue. we have people all over, millions of people sending us five, ten, 15, 20 dollar checks saying, stands up to this guy that says we can only have three bullets, which is what he said. stand up to this guy that says ridiculous things like the nra wants firearms with nukes on them. it's insane. >> after weeks of bipartisan negotiations between chuck schumer and tom colburn fail to advance and john mccain is emerging as a critical player in talks to expand background checks. susan collins and dean heller could fine off on the bill after the democrats included several modifications aimed at attracting support electric the right. a recent quinnipiac poll finds the majority are in favor of background checks. senate majority leader reid said we will not include it in the package. he doesn't believe an assault weapons ban will get through. are you with what might get through? >> i would have kept the assault weapons ban in. >> you would have? >> i disagree with senator reid. i think he should have made
